ALT Sodium chloride, also known as table salt, rock salt or sea salt, occurs in nature as the mineral halite. It is produced by mining [rock salt], by evaporation of brine from underground salt deposits and from sea water by solar evaporation. The United States is the largest world producer and salt is recovered on a commercial scale in some fifteen states. Thick beds of rock salt are found in New York State which extend through Ontario, Canada into Michigan. Salt is also produced from salt domes, nearly vertical pipelike masses of salt that appear to have punched their way upward to the surface from an underlying salt bed. Salt domes are found along the Gulf coast of Louisiana and Texas, as well as in Germany, Rumania, Spain, and Iran. As a sedimentary deposit, rock salt beds underlie thousands if not hundreds of thousands of square miles of the earth's surface, and in some places are as much as two thousand feet thick. Salt mines have a constant temperature and humidity. Sodium chloride consists of cubic, white crystals, granules, or powder, colourless and transparent or translucent when in large crystals. Salt readily dissolves in water. The
temperature of the water hardly makes a difference for the dissolving of salt: one gram of it dissolves in 2.8 ml water at 25o and in 2.6 ml boiling water. By weight, salt is 40% sodium and 60% chloride. 
 USES Natural salt is the source of chlorine and of sodium as well as practically all their compounds, e.g.  hydrochloric acid, chlorates, sodium carbonate, hydroxide, etc. Also used for preserving foods; as an astringent and antiseptic in mouthwashes, dentifrices, bubble baths, bath salts, and eye lotions; in the manufacture of soap and dyes; in freezing mixtures; for dyeing and printing fabrics, glazing pottery, tanning hides; in metallurgy of tin and other metals; in fertilizers and stock feeds; and as a weed killer. 
 SEA Sodium chloride, in the form of halite, makes up about 80% of the dissolved salts in sea water. On evaporation the relatively heavy calcium salts precipitate first, and the light magnesium salts last, with sodium chloride occupying a middle position. Halite is dissolved in the waters of salt springs, salt lakes, and the ocean. It is a major salt in playa deposits of inclosed basins. Salt beds range between a few feet to over 200 feet in thickness and extensive bedded salt deposits are widely distributed throughout the world. Sodium chloride is present in all tissues, but particularly the fluids, and is the most important mineral in the blood plasma. "The relationship of the principal kations in the blood serum of all animals, as well as of man, is constant: Ca:K:Na as 5:10:160. This happens to be a close duplication of their respective proportions in sea water which differs only by a greater content of magnesium. Even this difference is explained by the theory of McCallum who, in view of the fact that the sea precipitations of the Cambrian epoch show a very low magnesium content, points out that the separation of the animal organism from the surrounding water, prior to their emergence from the sea onto the land, took place at a time in which the sea still had a low magnesium content. Thus it actually appears justified to say that in the blood serum of animal and man something like the aboriginal 'water of life' still circulates. The plant with its preponderance of purely vegetative, absolute life has deviated from this balance towards a greater reliance upon potassium. Where ensoulment takes hold, notably at the expense of pure vitality and regenerative power, natrium, its most important representative compound being the chloride, prevails over the other minerals."1
 FIRE The relationship of the alkali metals - group I of the periodic table - with water is literally one of fire and water. The effect of water on the lightest member of the group, lithium, is limited to simmering and bubbling with hydrogen gas but on the whole the reaction is quiet. However, with the next member, sodium, the effects become violent, so that there is seething and boiling whenever sodium comes in contact with water. With the following three members of group I - potassium, rubidium, cesium - the reactivity with water keeps increasing; potassium makes water ignite and burn, whilst rubidium and cesium create explosions with it. If sodium combines with chlorine, to form salt, the virulence of sodium becomes controlled. It is remarkable that the alchemists knew about sodium before chemistry established the reactivity of the alkalis, most notably sodium and potassium, in the beginning of the 19th century. Decades before Davy isolated sodium, in 1807, the French 'unknown philosopher' Louis Claude de Saint-Martin [1743-1803] described salt as "fire, born of water, both its quintessence and its opposite." The correlations between this man and what is known about salt in homoeopathy are curious but, perhaps, coincidental. Deeply affected by the early loss of his mother, de Saint-Martin embarked upon a spiritual quest at the age of 22. He believed that the true seeker had to draw strength from within himself through a labour of knowledge and love, writing that "there is no other means to this holy initiation but to dive deeper and deeper into the depths of our being and not to let go until we can draw out the living and life-giving root." For him, wisdom blossomed when the individual truly discovered his own 'sensitivity', which is normally buried beneath his inner darkness. Saint-Martin never connected to women; he never married and had no mistresses, remarking "I feel in the depths of my being a voice telling me I come from a land where there are no women."2
 WATER BALANCE Sodium, usually in the form of the chloride, is an essential nutrient factor. Along with the mineral potassium, it forms part of the blood, lymph and cellular fluids and maintains the body's proper water balance and blood chemistry. Together, sodium and potassium provide the electrical potential that is necessary for cell membranes to exert their selectivity as to what they allow inside the cell and what they will exclude. Sodium is also required for digestion [by stimulating the secretion of gastric juices], muscular functions, and the nervous system. The sodium concentration is maintained within a very narrow range by the body. Eating something salty will elevate sodium levels, to which the body will respond by stimulating thirst. The increased intake of fluids will then dilute the sodium levels back to normal, allowing the kidneys to excrete the excess. Inadequate intake of fluids forces the body to retain excess water to keep sodium levels in check, resulting in oedema or water retention. Conversely, consuming too much fluid can lead to extremely low concentrations of sodium, resulting in headache, mental confusion, and general weakness. Excessive fasting, starvation, or loss of fluids due to perspiration, vomiting, or diarrhoea, may cause a deficiency of sodium. Excretion of sodium is mainly via the kidneys and the resulting urine usually contains from 920-2300 mg sodium per litre. Increased intake leads to increased excretion, as long as the kidneys are healthy and there is sufficient water excreted. Control of urinary excretion of sodium is under the influence of adrenal and pituitary hormones. It has been estimated that 90-99% of ingested sodium as the chloride is excess and therefore destined for excretion in the urine. 
 DEFICIENCY Sodium deficiency can occur in many diseases as well as in situations of overexertion leading to excessive losses of sodium from perspiration. Sweat contains from 460-1840 mg sodium per litre but in those who are acclimatised to heat this is maintained at 960 mg per litre. Excessive losses of sodium cause reduction of both the extracellular fluid volume and the blood volume. The blood thickens, veins collapse, blood-pressure is reduced and the pulse becomes rapid. These changes cause dryness of the mouth even though thirst may be absent. There is usually mental apathy, loss of appetite and sometimes vomiting. Muscle cramps are usually present. Dehydration is also indicated by sunken features - particularly the eyes, which recede - and a loose, non-elastic skin. 3 Hyponatremia - decrease in the serum sodium concentration below the normal range - is perhaps the most common electrolyte disturbance seen in a general hospital population, occurring in 1% of such patients. The principal causes of this condition are: sodium depletion in excess of water depletion or replacement of sodium losses with water alone;  excessive water intake without sodium retention in the presence of renal failure, Addison's disease, myxoedema, or elevated output of antidiuretic hormone [e.g. stress, postoperative states, and drugs such as chlorpropamide, opioids, barbiturates, and vincistrine]. Postoperative hyponatremia is particularly frequent, occurring in up to 4.5% of patients, as the result of a combination of increased ADH output and excessive administration of hypotonic fluids after surgery. Hyponatremia has been reported in up to 56% of hospitalized patients with AIDS. Experimentally, brain water content is elevated in both acute and chronic hyponatremia. In the acute setting, brain cells adjust their volumes less well, and both intracellular and extracellular brain swelling occurs. As a result, symptoms of CNS dysfunction are more common, and mortality is substantially greater in acute, as compared with chronic, hyponatremia. The mortality of hyponatremia is increased when associated with alcoholism. Recent evidence suggests that cycling premenopausal women may be especially susceptible to severe cerebral oedema in association with acute hyponatremia. 4
 EXCESS Excess of sodium in the body - hypernatremia - accumulates primarily in the extracellular fluids. The condition generally results when water losses exceed sodium losses in conjunction with inadequate water intake [caused by either an impaired thirst mechanism or limited access to water]. Hypernatremia appears to be particularly common in the elderly. The principal causes include diabetes insipidus where antidiuretic hormone is deficient; kidney failure; high blood calcium; low blood potassium; excessive sweating without access to water; excessive diarrhoea; excessive intake of sodium with limited access to water; water loss due to peritoneal dialysis. Consequences of high salt intake that is not excreted are high blood pressure; enlarged heart; nephritis and enlarged kidneys. The major clinical feature of hypernatremia [or water deficit] is CNS dysfunction, resulting from brain cell shrinkage, and leading to symptoms ranging from subtle changes in mental status and personality to irritability, hyperreflexia, seizures, and coma. 5
 FLOW Salt combines in itself two opposite tendencies: crystallization and solubility. A grain of salt dropped into and melted in water is a Tantric symbol of the reintegration of the ego in the Universal Self. Conversely, the precipitation from sea water is tantamount to "the emergence of the individualized mind and personality from the motherly embrace of the collective unconscious in its quest for consciousness and inner freedom" [Whitmont]. According to Walker, Egyptian mummies were preserved in a brine solution called natron, 'birth-fluid'. [This suggests a link between 'natron' and 'natus', born, as for instance in 'neonate', newly born.] "Salt was accepted as a substitute for the Mother's regenerative blood; it came from the sea-womb and had the savour of blood. Therefore salt became a symbolic instrument of kinship, like maternal blood."6 Between both poles a continuous exchange [flow] has to be maintained. Differences in salinity [density] are a co-factor in the flow of some ocean currents. [Water flows in the direction of higher salt concentration.] Too much to the pole of solution becomes dissolution, merging and loss of boundaries. This is particularly observed in the symptom picture of Natrum carbonicum, where unselfishness, self-sacrifice, 'music of the spheres' and oversensitiveness to many influences predominate. Too much to the pole of crystallization results in retainment, conservation and standstill. Natrum muriaticum is the best example of this, with its characteristic emotional dehydration [sadness but can't cry], clinging to the past, and images too long retained. These aspects are vividly expressed in the fate of the wife of Lot, who looked back when leaving Sodom and Gomorrah and was turned into a salt pillar. The ban on looking back is often found in the ancient literature. Homer tells of the sea-goddess Leucothea who out of pity for Odysseus gives him a shawl that saves him from drowning. She directs him to throw the shawl back into the water as soon as he has reached dry land, with the specific instruction to do this with his back towards the sea and without turning around. Odysseus does exactly as he is told and falls soundly and safely asleep on the magical island of Scheria. Orpheus, the supreme singer and musician of Greek myth, found himself in a similar situation. Orpheus descended to the Underworld to fetch back his wife Eurydice, who died of a snake-bite. He entranced the entire world of the dead with his songs, performed so beautifully that 'all the shades listened and wept' and 'the cheeks of the furies, for the first time, were wet with tears'. He is allowed to take his Eurydice back to earth, on the condition that he won't look back at her until they have regained the light of the sun. Just when reaching the end of the long ascent, Orpheus looks back, perhaps out of fear that she might not be there behind him. At once she melts away into the darkness, dying for the second time. 7 Salt is also in more positive ways associated with what has past. Turning one's back on something, for example putting a feud or a curse behind, was symbolically expressed by throwing a pinch of salt of the shoulder. After a hated visitor had left, it was an old custom in Japan to sprinkle salt on the thresholds as well as throughout the house as a sign of purification.  
 FOOD Natural foods generally do not contain high amounts of sodium but the mineral is added in large amounts as common salt during cooking, refining, processing and preservation of foods, such as bacon, instant soups, bouillon, snack foods, canned goods, and ham. Foods of animal and fish origin usually contain more sodium than whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and fruits. Rich sources of sodium therefore are processed foods from animal or fish origin: bacon, smoked fish, salami, sauces, canned or boiled ham, processed cheese and cheese spread, corned beef, sausage. Moderate natural sources [unprocessed] include root vegetables, fresh fish, yoghurt, pulses, and dried fruits. The ideal sodium content of food for babies is that of mother's milk. Unmodified cow's milk contains more than 4 times the amount of sodium [per litre] than human breast milk. [This illustrates the similarity between Natrum muriaticum and Lac defloratum.]
 MEDICINE Sodium chloride may be given orally as emetic, stomachic, laxative, or to stimulate thirst [prevention of calculi by keeping calcium soluble]. Intravenously as isotonic solution to raise blood volume, to combat dehydration. Locally as a wound irrigant. 
 SYMBOLISM Salt was an important ritual element to the Children of Israel, all sacrificial victims needing to be dedicated with salt. "You must salt every oblation that you offer, and you must never fail to put on your oblation the salt of the covenant with your God." [Leviticus 2:13]. The Catholic baptismal liturgy alluded to the salt used on food and similarly made the salt of wisdom [the sapientia salis] a symbol of the seasoning of spiritual nourishment. Eating salt as a communal action sometimes partook of the qualities of communion and a bond of brotherhood. Salt was shared in just the same way as bread. 'One cannot get to know a man until one has consumed the proverbial amount of salt in his company,' said Aristotle. Negotiations and agreements in ancient times were rounded off with the sharing of salt, as a sign of an agreement that could not be broken. 'The covenant of salt' [2 Chronicles 13:5] denotes a covenant which God cannot break. In this context salt denotes incorruptibility, as well as permanence in relationships, contracts or friendships. A tale in 'The Thousand and One Nights' tells of a thief who broke into the sultan's treasure-room and took a sack of jewels. In the darkness he happened to lick a salty stone, which made him leave the jewels alone, for "One cannot steal from those whose salt one has tasted." In China salt is used as a symbol of permanence in weddings: the groom gives his bride bread, implying that she never will be hungry, and a bowl of salt, confirming the perpetuity of the union. The Roman rite of confarreatio had the bride and groom share a cake of flour and salt, which stood for flesh and blood respectively. And magically transformed them into blood kin, unable to harm one another. But salt may have a contrary symbolic meaning as well and signify hopelessness, infertility and punishment. Land sprinkled with salt denotes an arid and rock-hard soil. The Romans sprinkled salt over the sites of cities which they had razed to the ground to make permanently barren the soil. The biblical Sodom is 'a land overrun by weeds and salt pits and desolated forever'. Psalm 107:34 speaks of salting as a condemnation, brought on by 'the wickedness of those dwelling there'. 8,9
 VALUE Not all roads may have led to Rome, but the Via Salaria [salt ways] definitely did since the Romans appear to have concentrated their infrastructure near salt sources and on salt routes between those sites and Rome. The Romans exploited great salt oases in North Africa, which led to extensive salt trade along caravan routes through the deserts. On the return journey, merchants brought slaves with their weight in salt; from whence the "worth his salt" for slaves appreciated by their owners. According to Pliny, "the soldier's pay in Rome was originally salt and the word salary derives from it." For the Chinese salt was as valuable, if we may believe Marco Polo. They had a 'greater money', which was gold, and a 'smaller money', salt, in the form of dried and hardened salt cakes with the stamp of the Grand Khan impressed on them. The great importance of salt has given reason to believe that such great civilisations as the Mediterranean, Mesoamerican, and Babylonian, first developed near deserts and in desert climates because these were close to known salt sources. An unbalance in its distribution may have been one of the prime causes of unrest and civil upheaval in the ancient world. The infamous gabelle or salt tax is considered to have been a leading cause of the French Revolution.

 Main symptoms
 * All Natrums are hypersensitive and closed. In Nat-m. the defensiveness and resentment predominate. "Not to hurt - not to be hurt" OR "To hurt - not to be hurt."
 M  Great VULNERABILITY - easily HURT. 
 Fear of being REJECTED.
 • "From the looks of everyone, he concludes that people pity him for his misfortune, and he weeps." [Hahnemann]
 • "To be hurt by that which he loves best is an important Nat-m. trait." [Coulter]
 M  Desire for SOLITUDE. 
 • "He avoids company because he foresees that he might easily annoy others." [Hahnemann]
 DWELLS on past disagreeable occurrences.
 Can't or won't put old grievances out of their head. 
 Recall them again and again, esp. by playing sad MUSIC. 
 Cling to traumatic experiences.
 • "He cannot remove from his thoughts injuries he has inflicted on others, or which have been inflicted on him, which depressed him so much that he had no pleasure in anything."
 • "He sorrowfully torments himself, by continually looking for disagreeable ideas, which weakenhim."
 • "In his thought he constantly recalls former disagreeable occurrences, so as to worry himself by thinking about them." [Hahnemann]
 • "An idea clings, prevents sleep, inspires revenge, etc." [Boger]
 • "To these individuals time is not the 'Great Healer.' On the contrary, it serves only to crystallize the past. The insult or guilt festers, becomes magnified out of proportion, and ultimately holds the individual captive. Like a miser who hoards his gold and periodically goes to his strongbox to count it, Natrum muriaticum hoards his memories of injury and self-condemnation, periodically retrieving them for re-examination. He may even grow attached to them by virtue of their familiarity; or he may become chronically melancholy and morbidly 'introverted' [Hahnemann], to the point of resenting any attempt to extricate him from his incubus or relieve him of his unhappiness." [Coulter]
 M  Very RESPONSIBLE; feeling of guilt. 
 Absorb grief and problems of other people, and brood over it when alone.
 M  OBJECTIVE and controlled on MENTAL level, IMMATURE on emotional level 
   • "Lack of balance - may either be over-conscientious or lose all interest; over affectionate or no interest in people around them; full of tears or afraid of nothing; will tackle everything or want someone to back them up in everything they do; weep from the slightest cause or nothing would make them weep." [Borland]
 M  Wall around Nat-m. may come down after alcohol or during sex. 
 • "They may go more to the opposite of extreme; extremely talkative after alcohol; somebody who after a drink states that he loves everybody, is mostly Nat-m.; it is one of the main remedies that has the tendency to use obscenities during sex." [Morrison]
 M  DEFENSIVE and cautious. 
 • "They have an appearance of self-assurance, almost of opposition. They are not the most friendly of patients and seem to be definitely on their guard. They will answer questions, usually fairly shortly, often abruptly, and do not give anything away at the beginning of the interview." [Borland]
 • "They are late in learning to talk and then speak little, telling nothing about what is going on in their lives [at school, for example]. Later, we might find an adult, face hidden behind a profuse beard, who has decided to 'really express himself' by crossing the Atlantic on his own, alone on the sea beneath the sun. In the homoeopathic interview, these individuals reveal nothing: all our observations are summed up by the blank page before us, on which we might simply write, in very large letters, 'Natrum muriaticum'." [Grandgeorge]
 • "The Nat-m. patient will walk rapidly into the consulting room, but much more deliberately [than Ars.] - she's not in a hurry to tell her story - more a look of - if it's got to be done, we might as well get it over quickly. She often puts down her parcels shakily. Alert and flushed as she comes in, she will sink back later into her chair and becomes sallow and greasy looking. You might have thought of Phosphorus as she came in, but not now. She is generally broadly built and a definite character. She will not be very communicative - she has a contradictory nature."1
 • "Are said to have absolute intolerance of consolation; as a matter of fact they crave for consolation from the right people." [Borland]
 • "The characteristic feature which distinguishes the frame of mind of Nat-m. can be recognized as the emotional conflict of the integration of his personality. He is always placed upon his own resources, either deliberately, as he repels every attempt of sympathy and companionship or involuntarily, through the loss of the beloved person on whom he used to rely emotionally. This state of isolation and loneliness is accentuated by the fact that love, sympathy and communion with others are longed for; yet an inner command, as it were, forbids their acceptance [emotional, hysterical, full of tears, craves sympathy, hidden grief, crying in secrecy, etc.] and urges him on to find the source of strength within himself. This separative urge is greater than his emotional longing for connectedness, he is torn by inner strife ... To master sweat and tears, toil, pain and emotion moulds the human personality. The experience of separation and of loneliness has to be passed through as a stage in finding one's self." [Whitmont]
 G  Mainly WARM; can be chilly.
 G  Strong craving for SALT.
 G  Great THIRST; for cold drinks.
 G  < HEAT, esp. heat of SUN.
 • "The warming sun, the quintessential symbol of life and growth, is frequently a source of physical pain to Natrum muriaticum, who is either enervated or drained by it. Its glaring rays, endowing our universe with heat and energy, are poorly tolerated by him; the sun's light hurts his eyes, he is sensitive to its heat, his skin may break out in various ways, or he develops headaches. In mythical and symbolical tradition the sun is associated with the heart and the affections, and predictably its throbbing energy threatens Natrum muriaticum's most vulnerable side. Thus it becomes to be associated with fatigue, burning, and depletion." [Coulter]
